Three convenient saliva profiles are offered to assess sex and adrenal hormone levels. These profiles test waking levels of estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-S, and cortisol, while Profile II includes a bedtime cortisol test and Profile III a full diurnal cortisol profile at four time points during the day (morning, noon, evening, night).
✔ Saliva Profile I includes: E2, Pg, T, DS, C
✔ Saliva Profile II includes: E2, Pg, T, DS, Cx2
✔ Saliva Profile III includes: E2, Pg, T, DS, C
LCMS Saliva Steroid Profile
The profile includes 23 tests all reported together from one convenient morning saliva collection. Tests include a broad range of bioavailable estrogens, androgens, progestogens and corticosteroids and their metabolites; plus melatonin, ethinyl estradiol and the hormone blockers anastrozole, finasteride and letrozole. This provides a comprehensive picture of hormonal status and how hormonal birth control and hormone blockers are affecting endogenous hormone availability.
✔ LCMS Saliva Steroid Profile Includes: E2, E3, E1, EE, PregS, Pg, AlloP, 17OHPg, Adione, T, DHT, D, DS, 7keto, 11DC, C, Cn, Ccn, Ald, Mel, ANZ, FIN, LTZ
Adrenal Stress Profile
The profile tests the adrenal hormones DHEA-S and diurnal cortisol. When individuals experience continuous stress, not only from emotional stressors (e.g., marital, financial, and occupational) but also from physical stressors (e.g., sleep deprivation, caffeine consumption, pain, extreme exercise), it can lead to changes in adrenal hormone levels, related to disorders ranging from anxiety to infertility.
✔ Adrenal Stress Profile includes: Saliva: DS, Cx4
Diurnal Cortisol Profile
The full diurnal cortisol profile at four time points during the day.
✔ Diurnal Cortisol Profile includes: Saliva: Cx4
